As my last automata project was nearing completion my brother passed on a Pachinko Machine that had been hiding in his basement for numerous years. It was a fixture in his house in the seventies and amused his three children endlessly. Video games were just getting stated back then so it was quite a novelty!
With a little TLC and cleaning it now has been resurrected to former glory and Pachinko balls are clanging around again! You can never have enough Gizmos around!
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
